Mr. Kunwer Sachdeva – founder of India's leading power solutions company, Su-Kam Power Systems – is one of the greatest innovators, marketers, motivational speakers and visionary entrepreneurs of our time. The success story of Sachdeva's Su-Kam is the biggest example of 'Make in India'. Sachdeva started off by selling pens on cycle with his older brother, and later founded a profitable business of cable TV communications in Delhi. Being a visionary, Kunwer was quick to foresee the growth of power backup industry in India and decided to shut down his cable TV business in 1998 to found Su-Kam Power Systems. Guiding force behind the company, Sachdeva catapulted Su-Kam to the top league of companies in its category within a short span of a few years. Once a startup, Su-Kam, is now an Indian Multi-National Corporation, and is recognized as one of the fastest growing organization among the India Inc. 500.

Besides leading the overall business of the company he also heads Su-Kam's R & D division. Sachdeva was the first Indian entrepreneur to file patents for technology and design in the Indian power backup Industry. He is also credited with inventing world's first plastic-body inverters which has been declared as 'Innovation of the Decade' by India Today. Kunwer revolutionized the power back-up industry by introducing world-class technologies such as MOSFET, Micro controller based and DSP Sine Wave into inverters. He also gave 'Home UPS' to India which combined the features of UPS and inverter into a single equipment. Before Su-Kam's entry, the inverter industry was dominated by hundreds of local players who were selling substandard products - Kunwer challenged the entire industry into becoming an organized sector. Owing to his many contributions to the power back-up industry, Kunwer is rightly known as 'Inverter Man Of India'. With a degrees in Mathematical Statistics and law from Delhi University, and no technical background, he mastered the advanced technology used in power electronics owing to his zest for learning.
